Meet The Team - Conor Ferns
In this week’s edition of our ‘Meet the Team’ segment we meet Conor Ferns, our Sales Advisor at Broadwood, the Tryst & Kilsyth Swimming Pool venues. Conor has worked with us here at NL Leisure for around 8 years and you can read his story below:
1.Tell us a bit about yourself?
My Name is Conor, I am 24 years old and I live in Cumbernauld. I work as a sales advisor here at NL Leisure and I do this at both Broadwood & the Tryst in Cumbernauld, as well as Kilsyth Swimming Pool.
2. How long have you worked with NL Leisure for?
I have worked for NL Leisure since Broadwood Leisure Centre opened in 2009. Previously I had worked in Broadwood as part of the catering team and then I moved over to the leisure side of things. I have worked in many different positions throughout my time with NL Leisure, ranging from Leisure Attendant and Reception Staff, to working at functions in the bar and in the kiosks as a food distributor in the stadium during matches.
3. Tell us about your role?
My current role as a Sales Advisor means I am always speaking with new and existing members to help them on their fitness journey - whether that’s booking them in to appointments with Jill our nutritionist, or with a member of our gym team. Our roles have recently changed and we are now looking to branch out and offer advertising packages to companies. This has been great as it has given me the opportunity to expand my current role and is something I’ve really enjoyed.
The most enjoyable part of my job is the communication that I have with the various different people that come into our centres, speaking to different people and building rapport with our members. That’s what I enjoy most about my job.
4. What do you like to do in your spare time?
I have recently moved into a house with my girlfriend which we have spent the last 10 months renovating. We only have a few bits and pieces left to do so when I’m not doing that, I enjoy socialising, going out with my friends and enjoying my downtime from work. I have recently started playing football again after a while out so that takes up some of my time at the weekend as well.
